Papa Joe’s Banjo-B-Que Music Festival came to life in 2010 to honor Joe Pond, who gave so much to his community. Feel-good music, southern barbecue & most of all a family atmosphere were a few of the things Joe Pond enjoyed and loved sharing with his family. All proceeds benefit the Joseph R. Pond Memorial Foundation, which benefits the CSRA Foundation. Join us Memorial Day Weekend, May 24 & 25 at Lake Olmstead Park in Augusta, GA for the 10th Annual Papa Joe’s Banjo-B-Que Music Festival! We’ll have some of the best roots, rock and bluegrass music you can find, finger-lickin’ good barbecue, a large selection of craft beer, kids activities, and fun for the whole family!
